The International Olympic Committee has warned it will move theTokyo 2020 golf event from its current venue if it does not admit women.
The Kasumigaseki Country Club does not allow women to become full members or play on Sundays.
"I respect it's a private club but our position is clear. We will only go to a club that has non-discrimination," said IOC vice-president John Coates.
"At some point there has to be a cut-off."
However, Coates added that he did not expect to have to find another host for the event.
